Funding Opportunity   


  • RFA-AI-23-059. Development of Candidate Radiation/Nuclear Medical Countermeasures (MCMs) (U01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed). Letter of intent December 26, 2023. Receipt date for full application January 26, 2004. Review oplanned for July 2024, Council October 2024, Start date December 2024. The purpose of this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) is to support early to mid-stage research focused on development of candidate medical countermeasures (MCMs) with post-radiation exposure administration data demonstrating efficacy to mitigate and/or treat radiation injuries. Product development should focus on mitigating acute radiation syndromes and/or the delayed effects of acute radiation exposure. Additionally, elucidation of mechanisms of action of MCMs necessary to meet product licensure requirements.

  • NOT-OD-24-001: Notice of Special Interest (NOSI): Administrative Supplements to Recognize Excellence in Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (DEIA) Mentorship. This administrative supplement recognizes the crucial role that engaged, active mentors play in the development of future leaders in the biomedical research enterprise. This NOSI encourages PD/PIs to promote DEIA and mentorship broadly and as such differs from a Diversity Supplement (PA-23-189). The latter is designed to support research experiences for individuals from diverse backgrounds, including those from underrepresented groups, through the career continuum from high school to the faculty level. In contrast, this NOSI focuses on mentors who have dedicated their time and effort and made significant contributions, based on evaluation data and publications, to DEIA to apply for an administrative supplement to further their personal research and/or mentoring activities.



  • Request for Information (RFI): Inviting Comments and Suggestions on the National Cancer Institute’s Support of Early Career, Mentored Cancer Researchers and Trainees (NOT-CA-24-007) In response to the renewed concerns raised by early career, mentored cancer researchers including through the work of the NIH’s Advisory Committee to the Director Working Group on Re-envisioning NIH-Supported Postdoctoral Training, NCI is examining its own approaches. We are taking the concerns identified by the many community engagements as a starting point and are here seeking input on potential approaches and innovations that might be implemented within areas under the NCI’s purview. We are particularly interested in feedback on the funding mechanisms we use or could develop to support early career, mentored-cancer researchers from middle school, high school, undergraduate and graduate studies through early research independence, and how they are structured and positioned with regard to the needs of a diverse cancer research workforce.

Article: “Overlapping Science in Radiation and Sulfur Mustard Exposures of Skin and Lung: Consideration of Models, Mechanisms, Organ Systems, and Medical Countermeasures”


Drs. Carmen I Rios, Andrea L DiCarlo, and colleagues summarize presentations and discussions on radiation and chemical countermeasure development programs and missions; regulatory and industry perspectives for drugs and devices; pathophysiology of skin and lung following radiation or SM exposure; mechanisms of action/targets, biomarkers of injury; and animal models that simulate anticipated clinical responses. [Disaster Med Public Health Prep. 2023 Oct 19:1-63. doi: 10.1017/dmp.2023.176.
